The Flames of Charity: St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

The devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus was primarily a private devotion, hidden away among the cloisters of Europe throughout much of the Church’s history. It was not until the 17th Century that the devotion was revealed to the world through the efforts and sufferings of a humble sister of the Order of the Visitation of Mary in Paray-le-Monial in France.
